Welcome to my website and my practice.

People Tree Wellness is a holistic health and healing practice founded upon the ancient healing traditions of classical Chinese medicine and classical yoga, utilizing acupuncture, hypnotherapy, therapeutic yoga, and guidance in meditation practices as part of the therapeutic process.

In my practice, I strive to see, understand, and treat each person as a unique individual, whose body-mind-spirit are all integral to the healing process.

As someone who has suffered from physical pain and illness myself, I know how important it is to provide immediate relief from pain and symptoms that may be interfering with one’s ability to truly enjoy and embrace life.  In my practice, I work on two levels - one is providing immediate relief, and the other is working to uncover and heal the underlying root causes of any imbalances that may exist.  In Chinese medicine we call this treating the “branches” as well as the “roots.”  Tools I use to facilitate this process include:  acupuncture, cupping, gua sha, tui na, moxibustion, qi gong, therapeutic yoga, meditation, guided imagery, and hypnosis.

I love and am passionate about this work I do!  These therapies were fundamental to my own healing process at a time when the specter of neurosurgery loomed over me.  Through acupuncture, therapeutic yoga, meditation, bodywork, and nutritional support, I was not only able to avoid neck surgery and the possibility of a lifetime of medication, I was able to see myself and my life in a whole new light, which inspired me on this path.... These therapies continue to be the core of my own health care, helping me to maintain optimal health and wellness of body-mind-spirit.

Thank you... and welcome to my site!
